THE iNKLING - Deluge
£9.95 | add to cart
In a world where an endless stream of shitty, processed pop tunes pervade our existence, the sound Deluge subsumes doesn't seem so much from another era as from another dimension altogether.
To cut to the chase, we love it. We love it's musical lawlessness, we love it's epic crescendos and sublime plateaus and we love it's transitions. Most of all though we know you're going to love it so get stuck in!
Selected Press Reviews
These nine mostly instrumental mood pieces fizz and snap through the synapses and are far more broad ranging than the impenetrable glossy black sleeve might suggest. Flimsy touchstones may include King Crimson, Yes and Mike Oldfield...
Real Groove - Nov/Dec 2005
It is a remarkably succinct and lucid album, which doesn’t outstay its welcome. Every track is necessary and an absolute pleasure. They put on a jolly good live show too, so if you get the chance, go see.
The Wellingtonian - Nov 7 2005
The band plays lengthy instrumental tunes with a broad range of musical influences including rock, electronic, Latin, and jazz. "It doesn't fit into a classic music genre and we are all coming from different backgrounds, so it makes things interesting," says Smiley"
Sunday Star Times - November 6 2005
(“Deluge”) has nine extended instrumentals, each chocker with tension, texture and bold surprises. Any song might include hypnotic rhythms of Krautrock, bebop jazz, the bracing post-rock sound of Tortoise, the art rock of Captain Beefheart and the surf guitar sound of Link Wray. Some of it is beautiful, some harshly discordant, but the listener’s intelligence is engaged throughout. Good work. (four stars)
Exposure - issue 1 2005
An associate, who was present for one of our compositional mistakes, defined it as a "cultural orgasm". I still see it as one of the most powerful moments on our forthcoming album.
